I've thought about this myself. Fabricating the parts would probably be the easy part. But where exactly is the brake balancing done?? I would assume the master cylinder, but brakes are probably the thing I know the least about on cars. Such an important feature has never been on my mod list. All I've ever worried about is maintenance.

There'* a fixed proprortioning valve in the master IIRC.

My main issue with the braking system isn't necessarily the rear drums, but the undersized fronts.

I remember hearing the F body calipers are the same, but the mount between the caliper and W body hub is what makes it further out, and accept larger rotors...

All that really needs to be done for larger rotors is spacing the caliper out enough (not terribly complicated) and finding larger rotors for our 115x5 bolt pattern.
